Gregg Allman Undergoes Successful Liver Transplant

Gregg Allman

Glad to hear that everything seems to be okay for legendary rocker Gregg Allman who underwent a successful liver transplant this week at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida. Allman has been dealing with Hepatitis C for years and never really was one for moderation. In late 2007 Allman started receiving a series of treatment for his Hepatitis C but the damage done to his liver over the years led doctors to recommend a transplant.

Throughout the years the Allman Brothers Band has always been one of my favorite live acts and I was looking forward to their latest tour reaching California. Looks like things are going to have to wait as Allman recovers.

“I feel pretty good, considering everything that’s happened,” says Allman, who co-founded the Allman Brothers Band in 1969. “Everybody involved here, my doctors and nurses in the hospital and all the Allman Brothers fans, they’ve just all been great.” The surgery took place this morning (June 23) after Allman was notified that an appropriate liver had been donated. “All I can really say is thanks,” the singer says with gratitude.

“I changed my ways years ago,” Allman says, “but we can’t turn back time. Every day is a gift, and I can’t wait to get back on the road making music with my friends.”

Updates on Gregg’s recovery will be posted regularly on www.greggallman.com and www.allmanbrothersband.com.
